Charleston Photo Session: Kretman Family

This was such a special shoot and a first for me!  Krista emailed me to schedule a photo session on Folly Beach.  At one point during the planning she found out she was pregnant so they decided to wait and tell Izzie at our session to get her reaction!  I was so excited for her to find out!  She’d been wanting a little brother or sister 🙂

Charleston Photo Session: Davis Family

John is ONE!  And to celebrate we took some family photos at Alhambra Hall.  After a few of those we took off his spotless white outfit and had a cake smash!  I think he (and big sis Eleanor) thoroughly enjoyed it.

Charleston Photo Session: Issakainen Family

Most of my summer photo sessions are extended families out at the beach.  I always enjoy watching the cousins play and interact together.  When I was little my favorite week of the summer was when my cousins visited us in Syracuse!  I was so sad to see them go every time.  We took these images out by the Isle of Palms pier!  The mornings are perfect when there aren’t too many people out yet (and I may have edited some out of the background….)

Charleston Maternity Photo Session: Isle of Palms

How absolutely beautiful is this mama-to-be?  We got a perfect evening out at 25th Ave on Isle of Palms.  I love so much about this session – the colors, the light, this couple’s silliness and the fact that pretty soon I get to share photos of their sweet girl!
